When Lester F. Larsen was hired as Engineer in Charge of the Nebraska Tractor Test, the laboratory had been inactive since 1941 due to World War II. Much of the test equipment was out of order and in need of repair. He kept a journal called the Progress of Tractor Test Work. This journal of day to day activities extended from 1946 through 1956.
